President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize award was in fact a mistake. Obama actually won a Novel Piece Prize after playing bingo at an online bingo site. The prize was won at a Norwegian online gaming site when he managed to call bingo in under 45 balls.

The confusion arose in the English translation from the site. In Norwegian the letters B and V are actually pronounced the same way. When the email was sent to the Whitehouse informing the President, who is an avid bingo player, of his win the staff were totally surprised. One staff member who wished not to be named said. "We were in a state of shock. It seemed amazing to us that the president had won a prize for peace, especially after he had just sent in extra troops to Afghanistan. Unfortunately the news was released to the world before the error was noticed."

The Novel Piece Prize is in fact a electronic wine bottle opener in the shape of a popular Norwegian pop singer. The online bingo site said they regretted the error but unfortunately could not award the President with the Nobel Peace Prize but would still ship out the Novel Piece Prize by DHL tomorrow.
